Traffic Revisions Ahead!
With Resolutions 18-0403 and 18-0405, passed at the May 8 Regular Council meeting, the intersections of 24th St E / 122nd Ave E and 48th St E / Chrisella Rd E have changed.  Crews installed stop signs for all directions at these two intersections this week.  Please see the linked resolutions for more information.

24th Street East Work
Be advised that asphalt restoration work is scheduled for 24th Street East between Northwood Elementary and 94th Avenue East on Monday, June 18. While traffic will be flagged through the area, alternate routes are advised - please consider using Taylor Street and 92nd Ave E to avoid the work zone.

Also, construction is underway on the Northwood Elementary School Replacement and anticipate occasional construction related traffic impacts.  The Puyallup School District has a time-lapse camera installed on the site, viewable here:

Meridian Utility Work
PSE is working with the apartment developer on new power service at the corner of Meridian and 20th St E, and a temporary asphalt patch is in place for pedestrians. Level 3 Communications has completed their fiber optic system upgrades along Meridian between Emerald Street East and 36th Street East. In the coming weeks, expect intermittent lane closures for permanent asphalt patch work for those traveling north.

114th Avenue East Work
The Curran Estates development (located just south of Jovita Boulevard) will be working on frontage improvements over the next few weeks, so anticipate occasional construction related traffic impacts in the area. Alternate routes are advised. 

Vegetation Maintenance Program
Pierce County Public Works Crews are scheduled to go throughout the City during the month of June to trim and maintain vegetation in roadside ditches and at intersections. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact City Hall at (253) 952-3299.

Speed Limit Reductions
Due to the passage of Ordinance 18-0519 at the March 13 Regular Council meeting, the speed limits on several streets have been reduced from 35 miles per hour (mph) to 25 mph.  Crews have finished installing the new speed limit signs, which are enforceable immediately.  Please see the linked ordinance for more information.

207 Meridian / North Edgewood Apartments
Site development and utility work is underway for this project, located north of Emerald Street between Meridian and Jovita. Expect construction traffic access to and from Meridian to cause temporary impacts to northbound traffic weekdays between 8am and 5pm.

Dechaux Road Traffic Revision
Access to Dechaux Road from Meridian Avenue East (bottom of the hill) is no longer permitted. A map with recommended detours to the Dechaux Road neighborhood is available here.
